As a pioneer in the use of highly dynamic linear drives in machine tools, and based on years of experience with over 50,000 linear machines, Sodick is presenting a new generation of high-speed linear machining centres with linear drives in all axes – the UH series.
Unlike the conventional method of separately executed rough and fine milling, this new technology combines both these machining passes in the one operating mode. The solution is a rapidly rotating and traversing tool of small diameter that cuts to fine depths.
Fine depth milling
Small diameter cutting tools are ideal for minimising the cusp (residual surface roughness after cutting) and therefore milling resistance. The result is enhanced dimensional accuracy, surface finish, and tool life.
High Speed Milling
High-speed milling shortens cycle times and therefore the whole machining period. Other advantages are improved surface qualities, multi-purpose tools, and minimising chip sizes for ease of disposal. In addition, this technology does not require coolant, mist machining is also possible.
